On Sunday Nov.8 at 7:30 pm, the whole community is invited to attend “Sing Out a Song For Peace”, a one hour (free) concert to promote world peace. For twenty one years now, we have been raising our voices in support of peace and to honour veterans from all wars and peacekeeping missions.
Branch 120 of the Canadian Legion will participate with the Georgetown Choral Society and the Georgetown Children’s Chorus. Since 2015 is the 70th anniversary of VE day, we will tell the story of the liberation of Holland as told through the eyes of a young child, Riet Schenk of Georgetown. The other guest speaker will be Tom Milligan, who tells the story of his family seeking opportunity in Canada after the war, and the ongoing gratitude that Dutch immigrants feel many generations later.
The concert will be held at the Georgetown Christian Reformed Church, 11611 Trafalgar Rd. and will last one hour. Just prior to the concert (please come at 7:15) the choir will be hosting a singalong of old favourites from WWII era. We especially welcome veterans and descendants of veterans as we join to honour all those who fought for Canada in the past, and those who lost their lives in doing so. Special seating for veterans and their spouses has been arranged. Please call Lois Fraser at 877- 4411 ext. 253 to reserve a seat or arrange a ride.
